The photo shows Scot Lane (before the new shops and houses were build on Moorside) and Stanley Road. Aspull Morris Dancers parading and showing their skill maybe during one of the Aspull church walking days. The house at the bottom of Stanley Rd and going up Scot Lane have long since gon, although those shown on the right of Scot Lane are still there as shops. Can anyone identify the occasion or girls taking part?

This would have been a carnival. The girl in front was Betty Havelin. I was a little girl then and was mascot but not on the picture.

Didn't Betty Havelin move to Southend on Sea when she got married I married a lad from Essex and used to travel to London on the train with Betty on a couple of occasions . If my memory serves me right she married a lad named Alan Tremayne

The gable end to the wall at the back right of the picture was owned by my grandad Billy Croston. He also had 2 more shops on that row but i think that they was rentals. Uncle Pierce used to live in the houses to the right of the picture and had a couple of cattle trucks.
